Content descriptions

General Note: "Agatha Christie" -- cover.
"Originally published as The mystery of three quarters in the United Kingdom in 2018 by HarperCollins UK"--Title page verso.
Summary, etc.: "Hercule Poirot returns home after an agreeable luncheon to find an angry woman waiting to berate him outside his front door. Her name is Sylvia Rule, and she demands to know why Poirot has accused her of the murder of Barnabas Pandy, a man she has neither heard of nor ever met...Poirot is equally shocked, because he too has never heard of any Barnabas Pandy, and he certainly did not send the letter in question. He cannot convince Sylvia Rule of his innocence, however, and she marches away in a rage. Shaken, Poirot goes inside, only to find that he has a visitor waiting for him--a man called John McCrodden who also claims also to have received a letter from Poirot that morning, accusing him of the murder of Barnabas Pandy...Poirot wonders how many more letters of this sort have been sent in his name. Who sent them, and why? More importantly, who is Barnabas Pandy, is he dead, and, if so, was he murdered? And can Poirot find out the answers without putting more lives in danger?"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* It's a puzzle worthy of the skills of legendary detective Hercule Poirot: four persons receive letters accusing them of the murder of one Barnabas Pandy, letters ostensibly sent by Poirot himself. Two of the recipients, who have never heard of Pandy, are furious: Sylvia Rule believes her daughter's fiancé, a man she hates, to be behind this scheme, while John McCrodden suspects his disapproving solicitor father. The other two—Annabel Treadway, Pandy's granddaughter, who lives in his house, and Hugh Dockerill, housemaster at Pandy's great-grandson's school—regret what they know to be an error, for the 94-year-old Pandy accidentally drowned in his bath three months earlier. Recruiting Scotland Yard detective Edward Catchpool for assistance, Poirot starts with just one clue, a flaw in the letter e on the typewriter used by the accuser. Then the intuitive sleuthing begins, as Poirot looks for connections between Pandy and the four recipients, and among the recipients themselves, scheduling his customary reveal with all parties present before he cracks the case, to put pressure on himself, with a slice of an ingeniously constructed cake at the center. In her third Poirot mystery, Hannah, authorized to continue the series by Agatha Christie's estate, once again nails the style and substance of her beloved predecessor, producing another treat for Christie fans.
